Fork Truck Hire
In the building trade there usually comes a time when the services of a forklift will come in useful, or in fact be absolutely central to the completion of a project. In these instances it may not make sense to purchase either a new or second hand forklift, but rather to look into fork truck hire. The hiring of a forklift, rather than the purchase of a unit makes perfect sense if the project is to be of short duration or where the forklift will be needed for only a specific period of the project. Fork truck hire also has the benefits of not being reflected as an asset or liability on the books of the company, in essence it has no lasting impact on the accounts of the company. This makes perfect sense if the organisation is looking to borrow money as the bottom line is a lot more attractive to any financial institution. The lease agreement will also make allowances for insurance and service of the unit, removing these costs from the expenses of the company.
The key to successful fork truck hire is to make sure that the company that you are leasing the fork truck from has a reputation for the supply of reliable equipment and that it has an extensive after sales network. The time sensitive nature of most construction projects means that any equipment downtime will inevitably be extremely costly, both in terms of the targets and in terms of the reputation of the construction company. If you are leasing a forklift, always make sure that the company that you are leasing it from can provide a replacement unit extremely quickly in the event that the original unit breaks down.
When considering the lease of a fork truck a good guiding principle is to only lease those units which come from established or we’ll known manufacturers. In this way you will be assured that the fork truck is manufactured to strict industrial tolerances by a company that has had experience in producing tough, reliable equipment.
